    How beautiful and strange. Superb macro work! Congratulations on your feature in Super Macro Photography – FAVE:>)!

  • Thanks for the comment and fave, I can honestly say I have never seen a blue tongue quiet so detailed, I didn’t know they had that little extra piece or a slight fork until I decided to take this macro

    Fabulous capture – great timing – never seen the blue tongue’s tongue from this angle Wow!

  • Thanks John, it is a bit different and only took 5 shots thankfully, I don’t normally go around taking tongue shots but I had just seen the new Miley Cyrus music clip :o)

    I love this shot, the tongue looks like a piece of leather. It’s an amazing macro.

  • Thank you glad you like it. I will never look at a lizard the same way again it really is interesting to see at 100%
